|This article is about a/an episode in Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season 2.|
The recap episode of Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season 2.
The episode begins with a brief recap of the whole Season 1, and eventually through Season 2. Nobuo, Luna and Yuko, despite being killed in the previous episode, also narrated the recap. Hakase also baked some cake, but only kids when she said Nobuo, Luna and Yumeria could eat it. Like the previous season, there is also a 'special file report' on the weapons introduced in the second season.
When the recap eventually ended, it is revealed that the Nobuo, Luna and Yuko that were talking with Hakase were just the spirits of the real thing, as Hakase and Kozukozu once again mourn for their deaths. They eventually get over it, and the Akibarangers are called back to Heaven by Yellow4, TimeFire and AbareKiller. However, before leaving, Nobuo gives one reassuring statement... If the audience wants another season, then Saburo Hatte can easily just come up with an excuse to revive them.

Tropes and References
- The three Rangers who took the Akibaranger away were three notable deaths in the franchise: TimeFire, AbareKiller and the first Yellow4.
- This is similar to the appearance of three deceased Rangers, who were all initally antagonistic Rangers with Dinosaur mecha, in episode 18 of Gokaiger during Gai Ikari's near-death experience. The trio is the same as here except for DragonRanger being replaced by the first Yellow4, possibly because he belongs to the Zyurangers, one of the six official Sentai that granted the Akibarangers their Ludicrous Power, which would also explain why Black Condor of Jetman is absent. It does not, however explain where the first Battle Cossack from Battle Fever J or BeetBuster from Go-Busters are.
- Yuko makes a brief reference to Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger's sixth hero, Gai Ikari, when she states that their love for Super Sentai is greater than that of a "certain swashbuckling silver hero".
- The opening credits show two versions of the opening sequence at the same time.
- The ending theme was an alternate version of "Super Sentai Unofficial Fan Song" with vocals by the main characters, "Super Sentai Unofficial Fan Song(ver. MAX!!)"
- The ending credits replaced the Super Sentai images with Akibaranger production images.
